Kirsters Baish| The recent reboot of beloved television sitcom “Roseanne” has given television executives ideas about other shows to possibly bring back on the air. The fact that the show has already been so successful and the fact that Roseanne’s character is a Trump supporter gave Fox executives the idea to bring back another show that conservatives loved.
The reboot bug has bitten FOX hard, and the biggest beneficiary is Tim Allen’s recently-canceled show, “Last Man Standing.”
Our FOX sources tell us Allen’s show — which was controversially canceled last year — is now under serious consideration for a reboot. There were rumors the show was canceled because of Allen’s personal conservative affiliations — he compared being a conservative in Hollywood to 1930’s Nazi Germany, as well as the conservative character he portrayed on the show.
The irony … we’re told the success of “Roseanne” has intrigued FOX because there appears to be a big Trump-supporting audience out there. FOX produced the show when it aired on ABC, and we’re told the talk now is to possibly reboot and put it on FOX.
Actor Tim Allen said in the past that he was interested in the idea back when Roseanne announced that her show would be coming back and that her character would be a Conservative Trump supporter.
Fox News reported that fans of “Last Man Standing” urged ABC to bring the show back after “Roseanne” came back on the air. Allen’s show was full of hints at Conservative values, and a lot of people believe this may have been part of the reason for the show’s cancellation.
Allen spoke to Fox News exclusively and stated, “The support from all the fans to bring back ‘Last Man Standing’ is truly overwhelming to me and so appreciated. I, along with the talented writers, wonderful crew and terrific actors would definitely entertain the idea of bringing the show back as there is so much gas left in the tank, more to be said, and laughs to be had.”
The show was cancelled despite high ratings. Allen believed that it was partly due to a political bias, but no proof was ever found.
“Stunned and blindsided by the network I called home for the last six years,” Allen wrote on Twitter when the show was cancelled.
Allen has been open about his conservative views in the past. The actor told liberal talk show host Jimmy Kimmel that living in Hollywood today is similar to living in Nazi Germany.
“You gotta be real careful around here,” Allen stated. “You get beat up if you don’t believe what everybody else believes. This is like ’30s Germany.”
